    The Bourne Legacy - free admission

    Had the day to kill, so I decided to just watch movies before my late shift.

    Started off with The Campaign at 10:45 this mornin'...damn funny movie, which is to be expected considerin' its stars. There's stuff from the trailer that's not in the movie, so I'm lookin' forward to seein' the deleted/extended scenes when the DVD comes out.

    Followed that up with Hope Springs at 1:05. Pretty good movie, though I think a bit too much is given away in the trailer, especially a bit from the final two scenes of the movie. Still worth watchin', especially the therapy scenes, just 'cause the expressions.

    Then I just barely got into The Bourne Legacy at 4:20. Can't believe a show that early in the day almost sold out! Though it is Saturday...

    Anyway, a nice way to do a Bourne movie without Matt Damon, I'm not sure I'd want to see Jeremy Renner's character in a sequel from this one, or another cheat, considerin' what happens in this story. Next Bourne movie better have Matt Damon.

    59. The Bourne Legacy: A-

    This film continues the story element gimmick of overlapping part of the prior movie. I would call this movie more of a suspense thriller with a few action sequences than strictly an action movie. I was impressed with Renner, after MI:4, Avengers and now this he has full on action cred in my book.
    I would say that I would've liked a bit more backstory on Cross but what we got was good enough for the story I'm just being greedy.
    I think the movie succeeded at what it's goal was which was to show how now that Bourne has blown things wide open with Treadstone and Black Briar how far down the rabbit hole do things go. That's what this film did was show the audience just how sideways things were going while Bourne was wrapping up in part 3.

    Marilyn Monroe's first film with Billy Wilder (the second being, of course, the classic Some Like It Hot). It's consistently funny, though it never really crosses the line into being a great film.

    218. The Hoax (✩✩✩✩) - DVD
    219. The Invention of Lying: (✩✩✩✩½) - DVD - This is the story about a world where no one ever tells a lie. They always tell it like is, no one is polite and nothing is held back to spare others' feeling. Then one day one man learns to say what isn't (lie) and uses that to his advantage. He's able to do this because lying is a foreign concept, so everyone just believes whatever he says. Stars Ricky Gervais and Jennifer Garner. I wasn't expecting much, but the brutal honesty from the characters really grabbed me and kept my interest. What would actually happen if everyone told the truth all the time, including criminals? It's a fascinating concept to build a world around and the end result here was fun to watch. I recomend this movie. And if you watch it on DVD, there's a short that serves as a prequel. It takes place in the prehistoric era and shows us where our world and the one in this movie diverged. Basically, our world came obout because one caveman introduced a lie and the world in this movie came about because he told the truth. The cavemen are played by the movie's cast.

    220. Total Recall: (✩✩✩) - Theatre - I talk more about it here. Basically, it wasn't as good as the original, but it had some good effects, I liked the cast and there were some good homages to the original.

    221. Hanna: (✩✩½) - DVD - A girl who was raised by her father in the wilderness to be an assassin, makes her way to the real world where she's hunted by the head of an agency. Stars Saorise Ronan, Eric Bana and Cate Blanchett. The movie is slightly stylized in that it has a lot of quick cuts and some odd music. I don't have enough experience with European film to make a comparisson, but that's what I'm reminded of. The story isn't very engaging, but Ronan does pretty well as an action hero.

    222. Tower Heist: (✩✩✩) - DVD - The employees of a New York building lose their retirement savings to a Bernie Madoff-type character who lives there. One of them then takes it upon himself to put together a team to steal $40 million stashed away in the guy's condo. Stars Ben Stiller, Alan Alda, Matthew Broderick, Téa Leoni and Eddie Murphy. It doesn't have the same brand of Ben Stiller humor that I'm used to, but it's still a fun movie and Eddie Murphy looked like he was back on his game after all these years. If you see this on DVD, you'll get to see two parts of a happy ending in the bonus features that weren't in the movie itself. They aren't alternate ending, they're scenes that were left out. Don't know why.

    223. Friends with Kids: (✩✩✩) - On Demand - Two platonic friends decide to have a child together. Written by, directed by and stars Jennifer Westfeldt. The supporting cast includes her boyfriend Jon Hamm, Maya Rudolf, Megan Fox and Ed Burns. I enjoyed watching this movie. I thought Ed Burns had something to do with it because it explores life and relationships the way his movies usually do. I also wish they had shown more of the awkwardness of two friends trying to have sex to conceive a child. And I know the movie isn't about pregnancy, but somehow I wish they hadn't glossed over it.

    224. Gone: (✩✩✩) - On Demand - A young woman's is kidnapped right from her room and her sister who lives with her takes it upon herself to find the kidnapper while the police try to stop her. Stars Amanda Seyfried. It's an engaging thriller, but I was disappointed with the outcome.

    225. Wanderlust: (✩✩✩✩) - On Demand - A couple who couldn't make it in New York decide to head to Atlanta, but along the way, they end up in a hippy commune. Hilarity ensues, and boy does it. Stars Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston. This movie didn't disappoint. It was a lot better than I thought it would be. It was funny without being stupid.

    226. Brick: (✩✩✩½) - On Demand - A high school kid takes it upon himself to find out who killed his ex girlfriend. Stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt. I thought the story was convoluted but I'm giving it some extra points for its style. The characters are high school kids, but the events play out like something that takes place in the dark and gritty adult world of murder and intrigue. It's a film noir detective story set in high school.

    227. The Bourne Legacy: (✩✩✩) - Theatre - Jeremy Renner wasn't bad as an action hero, but the movie itself lacked the frenetic energy of the previous installments. I liked the story though once it got going and I wouldn't mind seeing more of these made.

    228. Defendor: (✩✩✩) - Live TV - An emotionally retarded man becomes a vigilante called Defendor and sets out to bring down "Captain Industry". Watch and it'll make more sense. Stars Woody Harrelson, Kat Dennings, Elias Koteas and Sandra Oh. It's a Canadian film shot in Toronto. The concept is a great one and Woody's character is enjoyable to watch, but the story itself could be tedious and for that I'm docking points.

    100. The Rocky Horror Picture Show

    I have wanted to watch this for several years and finally managed it. I can see why it became a cult film. It's wonderfully weird (loved the cuts to the narrator), but in the end I thought it was just ok.
    And my favourite song from it was "Science Fiction/Double Feature" right at the beginning.

    Only one new movie for me today, but at least it was a white trash murder for hire story set in Dallas, TX but filmed in New Orleans, LA...

    Chris has a problem - he owes money to a drug dealer. But Chris has a solution in mind, too. He goes to Ansel, and together they contact Killer Joe Cooper, a hitman for hire who also happens to be a police detective. Chris & Ansel want Killer Joe to murder Chris's mother so his sister, Dottie, can collect the insurance money, it can be split among the family & Chris can pay of his debt.

    Bad choices, bad ideas, coerced sex, and all kinds of abuse & assaults follow when Killer Joe takes Dottie as his "retainer" 'til she collects the insurance.

    Killer Joe earns its NC-17 rating with full frontal female nudity from young star Juno Temple, language, violence, and a simulated sex scene involvin' Matthew McConaughy, Gina Gershon & some fried chicken.

    Never gonna eat at KFC again after that one...

    Got a plan to see a free advance screenin' of The Odd Life of Timothy Green tomorrow, and may go to Music Monday at the Drafthouse Ritz for Dave Chapelle's Block Party.

    Stealth: So, the movie stars a white man, a black man, and a white woman. Points if you can figure out which one is killed, which two are paired romantically, and which one is promiscuous. Of course, this sort of conservatism doesn't even begin to cover the stupidity here. In a rational universe, the events of the movie would result in World War III, but this being a jingoistic ode to militarism in the age of the war on terror (which, of course, is best fought by supersonic jets with heavy weaponry -- honestly, it shocks me that this was funded by a major studio and not Boeing), the white American heroes get away with their lives and are lauded as heroes. My favorite cut might be when the heroes go from being on the North Korean side of the DMZ, which they have laid waste to, to being alive and well on their aircraft carrier in the Philippine Sea. Since it's set in the near future, we can assume that land mines no longer exist (and that the South Koreans would accept the Americans who had jeopardized their fragile peace with wanton killing and destruction with open arms).

    I've never seen this but just recall the trailers looking bad so I didn't go, not even for Biel. It's not even in my Netflix queue and I just saw Hardware so I'm not above trying questionable fare. Your review makes it sound "so bad it's good" though. :lol:

    Definitely a candidate for "so bad it's good" viewing. If there isn't a rifftrax for it, there should be.

    It was too stupid for me to take much of the action seriously. The DNZ finale is impossible to watch without wondering about the political consequences (and the heroes' impossibility of escape). The attack on the terrorist summit -- which happens to take place in an otherwise empty skyscraper that can be destroyed without causing any civilian casualties -- is a too stupid for me to be invested in it. The physics-defying debris that flocks to Jessica Biel's character after she has ejected fails to surpass even the lousy standards movie physics. The visual effects aren't awful, but in the absence of anything of real interest, who cares?

    Oliver Stone's second Vietnam movie, a sprawling, uneven epic that he calls the Odyssey to Platoon's Iliad. It certainly has its merits: Tom Cruise gives one of his best performances, and the appalling depiction of a VA hospital definitely stands out, as does the scene where Cruise visits the family of the man he killed. But the film as a whole feels disconnected, and his actual conversion to anti-war activism (which feels like it should be the film's big selling point distinct from other Vietnam movies) is rushed. The larger narrative sputters, and Stone's typical lack of subtlety feels like it harms the film in various places.

    Despicable Me - Blu Ray - Got this after watching The Lorax, done by the same French animation studio. While somewhat fun, overall it is flat and uninspiring. It sadden me that I was disappointed in the movie. I actually had some hope for it to be great.

    The Odd Life of Timothy Green - free screenin'

    Went to my first free advanced screenin' in awhile tonight, mostly 'cause I had the night off & it was held at Drafthouse, the theater chain I work for, so my employee discount could be applied to the tab.

    The latest live action movie from Disney is a pretty sweet story. A couple unable to have children of their own put all their hopes for a child down on paper & bury the notes in their garden. That night, a ten year old boy arrives in their house, with leaves growin' around his ankles.

    As each thing on the list is realized, a leaf falls from Timothy's legs and the couple learns what it means to become a family.

    Quite a few solid performers in relatively minor roles throughout the film. I especially liked David Morse's "Big Jim" and the little bit of redemption his character gets towards the end.

    Decided not go into downtown tonight, so I missed Dave Chappelle's Block Party at the Ritz. Ah, well...I can always rent it some time.

    Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid: It's hard to believe this movie was panned by critics when it was first released, because I can't find a single thing to complain about. It seems some critics disliked the use of contemporary music in a period piece, but 45 years later, the music is nearly as as old as the events depicted in the movie were upon release. Paul Newman and (especially) Robert Redford have never been better, and the supporting cast is filled out with a number of wonderful character actors.

    For those operating under the thesis that the late 60s/early 70s was a cynical time in Hollywood, the two Newman/Redford collaborations with George Roy Hill are hard to reconcile. Like The Sting, this is a nostalgic and old-fashioned sort of movie. Even the ending, which is true enough to history, manages to avoid the visuals of a bloody end in favor of a freeze frame that is much more mythical in its presentation of these two heroes that what was being presented in Bonnie and Clyde around the same time.

    It's sort of a comedy -- so it's probably better to see it with an audience (or at least a few friends), if you can manage.

    Barnes and Noble's latest sale is a good time to stock up on Criterions. In this case, finally a chance to see Sidney Lumet's 1957 directorial debut. Apart from a few moments with the pro-conviction jurors that seem a little obvious, it holds up exceptionally well 55 years after it was made. One of those movies that calls into question the frequent practice of describing confined films as "uncinematic".
